I think you're correct, Ed. A cursory (quick, fast, maybe wrong) google search tells me that $1 in about 1797 is about $25 today. So yeah, I would guess quite a few loaves of bread, soup, a beer, and maybe even a place to sleep by the fire at the inn.
Germany Brunswick Luneburg Cal Hannover - 1/3 Thaler, 1706
Chris B, yours looks like a 94.22
I have it as KM#51. I haven't seen that site before.
Professor Krumbach describes in detail and illustrates 28 varieties of the hellers dated 1794. These 28 varieties consist of 17 dies for the value side [which I would call the obverse] and 18 dies for the eagle side [which I would call the reverse].
In a 1996 update or addendum, 31 obverse dies [date, value] and 18 reverse dies [Holy Roman Empire eagle] were identified. No descriptions or pictures.
Based on the number of different dies, it is suggested or estimated that about 1,260,000 of these coins were minted.
Not that there's anything wrong with Germany (now).
1971 10 Pfenning
I'll keep us modern but I won't be the one to leave Germany. BRD 1971 five-mark, minted at the Karlsruhe Mint (G - Staatliche Münze Baden-Württemberg). One hundred years of a united Germany! So now, in 2021, we're at the 150. year anniversary.
